500 calorie diets are faster than 1000 calorie diets, but it’s very hard to stay on a 500 calorie diet for more than a few days. A trick that works though is to go on 500 calories every other day, when you are in a real hurry to speed up your weight loss. When it comes to eating 500 calories, as it’s practically no food, structure is super important. Half a chicken without the skin is 500 calories. A Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese (no bun) is 500 calories. 4 Lean Cuisine or Healthy Choice, not eating the noodles, rice, pasta or potatoes is 500 calories. 5 Greek yogurt is 500 calories. 4 hot dogs are 500 calories. 2 Costco frozen ground sirloin burgers are 500 calories. 2 three egg omelets are 500 calories.
